North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative
In early 2013, Mayor Michael B. Hancock recognized the need to align all of the efforts in Globeville, Elyria and Swansea under one coordinated vision as part of creating a world class city. The resulting North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) is a coordinated effort to ensure integrated planning and deliberate connections among the converging projects that are taking place.
Denver's Office of Strategic Partnerships
The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships(DOSP) was created in 2004 by then-Mayor John Hickenlooper and founding director, Mike Roque. Part of a burgeoning national movement, DOSP’s purpose was to serve as an intentional bridge between the City of Denver and the nonprofit sector. While the Office has offered a number of different programs since its founding, the core belief that by working collectively, the public and nonprofit sectors can be more efficient and effective in strengthening Denver’s communities has remained.
The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships focuses on building individual skills and tools in nonprofit and City agency staff to encourage creation of cross-sector partnerships, continuing and expanding the active facilitation of City-nonprofit collaborative efforts, and helping to connect the two sectors to leverage government grant and real estate resources in new ways.
